Maymont is a 100-acre American estate, an extraordinary gift given to the community by James and Sallie Dooley who lived there from 1893 to 1925. Whether strolling in the gardens, touring the mansion, watching river otters at play, or petting a...more

There is not one thing not to love about this park. Its an all day affair. Plan a picnic, bring a wagon to put in your belongings. Walk the gardens, see the animals, ride the carriage, visit the mansion and see the swan bed. I...More
We love visiting Maymont Park because it's an amazing place to spend your time and it's also our favorite place to take out-of-town guests. Here you will find a vast open space with spectacular views to spread your picnic blanket or let the kids run....More
My family and I have enjoyed the grounds and sights of Maymont many times over the years, but this past Christmas, my wife and I had a wonderful holiday experience touring the mansion, at night with all the volunteers dressed in period clothing, and displaying...More
Maymont is an amazing place, especially because admission is free. Of course, they accept donations. I visited twice during the holidays. They had lights in the garden which was quite nice. They also had a holiday festival with tours of the mansion. In all the...More
My wife and I visited Maymont the last weekend of 2018. It was an unplanned weekend but that's usually the best way to have a good time. And my wife's choice was perfect. There are all sorts of animals at Maymont. And were it not...More
The mansion is quite amazing. Tour 3 floors and get the perspective of the “1%” and the downstairs staff.
The decorations are borderline gaudy—most were built in the 19th century, but crafted to look like European antiques. But it kinda all works well together.
We enjoyed this tour very much. This hours is the ultimate example of the gilded age. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We were there on a rainy day, so we didn't spend much time outside, but the house alone was worth seeing! We...More
Maymont was an impromptu stop on an impromptu trip for me and my husband. We found it here on TripAdvisor and could not have been more pleased. The holiday tour of the mansion was beautiful and interesting. The grounds and gardens were beautiful, but would...More

I think there are numerous opportunities for photos to be taken. Each season can provide a different perspective from River views, trees etc but of course late Autumn into Winter will provide less in the way of blossom... More
I think there are numerous opportunities for photos to be taken. Each season can provide a different perspective from River views, trees etc but of course late Autumn into Winter will provide less in the way of blossom. Winter pictures can actually be quite stunning so don’t back away from a visit. Maybe dark & rainy days are not going to be so good. I hope you find this information helpful.
